A PBS journalist was mocked and ridiculed online for a bizarre comment appearing to preserve the liberal narrative that fetuses are not children until far after pregnancy has ended.
Yamiche Alcindor, also of NBC, said on MSNBC that she had been talking to a woman with tears in her eyes because she was so sad that some pregnant woman would find it harder to terminate their pregnancies.
“I talked to another woman who had tears in her eyes and said that she went up to the volunteers to thank them for their work because she said her, as a woman, who is an attorney, who has the means and resources, that she’ll always be able to get an abortion because she’ll always be able to fly to one of what they’re calling the thirteen safe states, places that might continue to have abortions, like California or New York,” said Alcindor.
“But for a lot of vulnerable women, women who are poor, women of color, they will be forced to have pregnancies that they cannot afford to terminate, and pregnancies that will then turn into children,” she added.
Many on social media mocked the ill-fitting intrusion of a liberal narrative into Alcindor’s reporting.
“The insane dual presupposition, used by nearly all abortion fanatics, is that (1) birth control does not exist, and that (2) sex does not have as one of its natural possibilities the creation of a child,” responded Ben Shapiro.
“I literally can’t keep up with the amounts of idiocy today,” replied Brittany Hughes.
“Pregnancy doesn’t ‘turn into children.’ Pregnancy is a state of being during which a mother is carrying her child in her womb. Terminating a pregnancy via abortion means killing that mother’s child,” read another popular response.
